Cyrus Chestnut’s third Atlantic CD continues to showcase his tremendous growth as a thought-provoking pianist and composer. “In the Garden” is an inspirational solo indicating his gospel roots. “East of the Sun (And West of the Moon)” proves his ability to create a novel trio arrangement of a standard tune covered by numerous musicians. The remaining tracks include a number of outstanding originals, especially the reflective “My Song in the Night” and the playful “Maria’s Folly.”
